    Oh, what good news! We are sending along our prayers and warm loving wishes to Billie and you both.

    My dad went into the hospital yesterday. He had some tests today, I just got off the phone with my mom and he is looking and feeling better. I hope he will be home by this time tomorrow. So I am relieved.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Major Prayers for a friend

    I have a friend that thinks with her heart and not her head when it comes to her ne'er do well husband. I've been really worried about her. I'm really worried for her tonight. Please, send prayers that she will think before acting. She wants this marriage to work so bad that she will believe anything he tells her.

    I'll explain more later.

    PTers, I'm not sure if this made the national news so you may not have heard about it. We had some crazy weather west of Chicago earlier this week. There was a big tornado (category 4 - almost the most severe) that came through. It involved Fairdale, Illinois which is a small town about 75 miles northwest of where I live. About 50 homes in the town and every single one had damage. Many were damaged beyond repair. Then another one in Rochelle, which is part of the Rockford municipal area. Homes and buildings were damaged there too, but that one was not as severe as the one in Fairdale. The governor is making a visit to assess the damage and declare the counties as disaster areas, which means they will be entitled to federal funds. He is also giving $100,000 individually (as a contributor- not the state's money) to help, because it will take time for the state to get out there, get set up and start helping people. I bet the president will either come or send someone from his staff to make a visit, too. So if you could say a prayer for the people in Illinois who were affected by these spring storms.

    I am fine. The power went out in my building but that happens a lot when the weather is crazy. These are not the kind of April showers I like!

    Thank you,
    Elyse

    This tornado with its massive destruction was all over the news here. How sad, how tragic for all involved.

    Prayers for all affected by such fierce storms.

    So sorry to hear, prayers on the way! I guess we're all at the mercy of Mother Nature. Not looking forward to our turn.

    If she is believing everything he tells her to make the marriage work, that marriage isn't working at all - not by a long shot.

    I hope she wakes up soon.

    Aww, but it could be so many things. Wide awake or not, there's financial fears, domesic abuse that could be deadly and some people would rather be with a DB than be alone. Cultural issues, the list goes on and on...Sometimes action is in order, it is certainy uncertainable without the facts eh?

    I don't have cable or satellite so I didn't hear about the tornadoes. So sorry that happened. It's scary. I managed to miss the storms (23 tornadoes) that hit NC a few years. The destruction was terrible. I was visiting my bro at the time.

    Hugs to you. Prayers for all.

    I was honest with her tonight. He supposedly had an almost rent free house for them. He's working in flooring and the boss had a few houses he could trade rent for work. She finally saw the house today or so she said. She wasn't thrilled but they didn't get to move in.

    I told her point blank that I didn't' trust her husband and that I thought he made all of that up. They were evicted from their trailer because she was the only one working.

    I'm not sure that she believes everything he says, but she wants this to work. So she lies to her friends and family. He's on prescription painkillers, too, and illegally I might add. SIGH.

    She won't listen. Even her sister is posting on FB about making decisions and tagging her.

    I care about her, but the drama is driving me nuts.
